Publisher's Summary

When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

This audio edition, featuring Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley's masterful narration, contains the complete text of Paramahansa Yogananda's life story, an absorbing account of a singular search for Truth. Yogananda describes his experiences with modern-day saints and illuminated masters of India, and presents a definitive introduction to the whole science and philosophy of Yoga.

    "Indian pronunciations needed lot of improvement"

    loved the book! the narrator did a nice job. however, he should have learnt the correct pronunciations of the Indian names, cities, and words. being from India, I struggled with that.

    "Brilliant!"

    I bought this audio book on a whim, Ben Kingsley as narrator was the selling point. What an incredible journey! Paramahansa Yogananda was a brilliant storyteller. I feel so blessed to have had the mystical experience of listening to this book.

    "I loved this book"
    What did you love best about Autobiography of a Yogi?

    He covered so many metaphysical subjects that I couldn't always keep up. So this is an audio book that I regularly listen to. Each time I pick up more knowledge. I find some merit in almost every story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course the book centers around the author's life. He is the protagonist, so to speak.


    What about Ben Kingsley’s performance did you like?

    Well, just about everything Ben does is 100 percent professional. This is no exception.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book is so good that it approaches the wisdom conveyed in the Bible. Books like this help me to understand the Bible better.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Paramahansa Yogananda.

    "Awesome"

    Awesome autobiography, filled with deep insights. This work held my attention and is worthy of a second listen with pen and paper in hand. wonderfully and soulfully narrated.

    I highly recommend this audiobook.
